    Heat can beat the Spurs iff all of the Big 3 have a great game. Can that happen four times in seven games? Yes it can. Heat in 7.

    I think the Spurs will win this time around. As long as Manu doesn't turn into a turnover machine like he did in last year's Finals and Kawhi hits his damn free throws, SA should be good. Spurs are the ones with home court this year, so that's big.

    I don't think so. He was being rested for a game 7 if needed. He'll play, I'm sure of it. Pop will probably make him a game time call just to keep Miami guessing.

    he will play for sure, but if he's not going to be effective than no way spurs are winning 4 games

    Haven't even read the Grantland article yet (sup Indesertum) but the headline reads "When the Thunder Became Westbrook’s Team".

    It's kinda sad really if it weren't so glaringly obvious by now.

    You gotta admit, those are some seriously impressive numbers. But this is why facts and stats are misleading.

    And:

    I think the solution to Westbrook is for him to handle the ball less. Allow a guy to make a play for him, and by proxy Durant. Jackson has shown that aside from being one ugly bug eyed motherfucker, he can develop into an excellent PG, all the tools are there.

    For me, Jackson is the key to stop this bullshit of giving the ball to WB/KD and let them make a play while 4 guys watch the ball at the 3 point line.

    so it looks like Fisher is likely going to be the next Knicks HC. i think he's obviously a great teammate and peer leader, but HC right from the bench? i suppose there's some precedent in the (limited) success Jason Kidd has this year, but this is an awfully big gamble that Phil is taking with a laughingstock of a franchise that he needs to turn around really quickly.

    Iunno man. Facts are facts

    Apparently Phil Jackson got fined 25k for saying he was considering hiring fisher for coach cuz he's still a player.

    Ridiculous
